Celebrate the birthday of one of America’s greatest legends, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody. In the grand tradition of parties, the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave will host the annual Buffalo Bill Birthday Bash on Sunday, February 23 from noon to 4 p.m. Sing Happy Birthday, eat cake, play games and maybe even learn a thing or two on this very festive FREE day.
Join the Museum staff at Noon for a ceremonial cutting of the cake by a photogenic collection of Buffalo Bill look-alikes. Then wander through the Museum exhibits, visiting with costumed volunteers as they discuss the Native Americans, buffalo and cowboys that were such a vital part of Buffalo Bill’s life. At 1:30 p.m. the action moves back outside for the annual Buffalo-Chip Tossing Contest. Prizes will be awarded in both an adult and child’s category.
Enjoy a special performance by Susie Knight, named 2014 Female Cowboy Poet of the year by the Academy of Western Artists. Her song, "The Spirit of Buffalo Bill," is a 2014 AWA Song of the Year nominee.

August 3, 2014
Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave will host the 11th annual Mountain Melodies Music Festival on Sunday, August 3, 2014 from noon to 4:00 p.m. Grab your picnic basket, blankets and lawn chairs and spend the afternoon at Buffalo Bill's grave on Lookout Mountain. You will enjoy
one of the most spectacular views of the Rocky Mountain Front Range while listening to some homegrown American music. Local favorites Dakota Blonde will headline the concert which
includes bluegrass and roots music.
This year the Mountain Melodies Music Festival continues its tradition of highlighting musical groups from communities along the Colorado Front Range. Other acts include Steel Pennies
and the Hummin'birds. This year, like the past 10 years, this festival will be FREE, thanks to funding from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
Add a walk through the Buffalo Bill Museum to your visit; consider dropping in to enjoy the special temporary exhibit "Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art". If you travel light or bike up
the hill, a full-service grill, ice cream, draft root beer and homemade fudge will all be available in the gift shop. It should be a great day to "Chill with Bill."
The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave site is located on Lookout Mountain, off I-70 at exit 256. The museum is open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. seven days a week. Cost of admission to the
Museum is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $1 for children 6 to 15 (5 and under are free).
